Raidho's Quest Begins


Raidho

Recommended Posts

Introduction:  Hi everyone! I'm Riadho. I'm 25, 175lbs, and 5' 7". I manage a movie theatre, so it's not the best job for inspiring fitness. I love reading books and comics. I'm a little music obsessed. I also like to knit. As far a physical activities, I'm a big fan of hiking, geocaching, biking, and geocaching. I'm trying to change my body and want to be able to keep up with my athletic boyfriend and our dog....and to prove to myself that I can do this!  


 


Main Quest:  Drop to 14% body fat by the end of the year 


 


Quest 1: Practice yoga every single day (I'm lacking in flexibility).


Measurement: A= Every Day, B= At least 30 days C- At least 20 Days


Reward: A= +3 STA, +2 STR +1 CHA B= +2STA  +1 CON C= +1 STA


 


Quest 2: No more fast food!


Measurement: A = 0 fast food, B = 1 meal of fast food per week  C = 2 meals per week


Reward: A = +3 CON, B = +2CON, C = +1 CON


 


Quest 3: Complete 1 work out (or equivalent activity - ie. hiking, kayaking, etc)  4-5 times a week.


Measurement: A = 4-5 times; B = 3 times C = 1-2 times a week


Reward: A = +3 STR, +2 DEX +2 CHA, B = +2 STR, +1 DEX, C = +1STR

Measurement: A = 42 days, B = 36 days, C = 30 days


Reward: A = +2 WIS +1 CHA, B = +1 WIS, C = +0.5 WIS


 


Motivation: As I said before, I want to be able to keep up with my boyfriend and my dog (and also my friends). I've become inflexible and easily winded. I want to be able to be a superhero to those I know (plus being attractive never hurt anyone)

hi and Welcome to the Rebellion :) I'm Bekah the Druid Ambassador (ie. my job is to help newbies who may want to join the Druids Guild for their future challenges, or anyone that needs help really :) ) and I just wanted to pop in and say hello and let you know that I am only a PM away if you need help with anything at all!

An attractive Superhero sounds like a fantastic goal! :)

Jaex- Thank you! I thought hard and realized that I wanted to kinda cover all my basis since this is challenge one for me. I figure I can always focus in more with each other challenge.

UPDATE TIME!

So I won't lie... my challenge got off to a rocky start.... ok so it didn't start at all at first. However, I finally pushed myself to get going. I stopped saying that I didn't have the time and energy because of work, and started looking at working out as an energy boost and as something I wanted to do, even if it would mean less free time. 

 

So, technically, it's been a week. Thus far I have been working out. I'm trying to stick to one day on one day off, but my schedule has made it look more like.... two days on, one day off. But I figure as long as I'm not overworking myself, and getting recovery time, while still actually making it to the gym.So far I'm just happy that I'm getting there regularly. I forgot how addicting the gym can be. 

As far as fast food, I've been able to avoid it. Though, I've had to alter my definition slightly. As much as I'd love to be able to meal plan and lay out food to ensure I'd be able to eat right, my living situation isn't really conducive to that (though that should be changed in the next month). Thus, I've realized that, on occasion I'm stuck eating Wawa hoagies, or chipotle every now and then, but I have sworn off all the fried, greasy chains. It's not perfect, but it's a start and I'm always trying to make the best decision, even if it's the lesser of 2 evils. 

 

Yoga, however, is a bit of a struggle. Flexibility is something that I'm lacking. While I know that yoga will help improve that (and I am stretching a lot), it just has been farther down on my priority list. Hopefully NerdFitness yoga will roll out soon and give me something to hold onto. 

 

In other news..... apparently I don't totally hate running. It's hard... .and not necessarily my favorite, but I've been having nice 20 minutes jog. I have a friend who's worked a ton on their body and through talking with him, I discovered the fact that I need ankle wraps. These have helped SOOOOOO much. I just need to get a torso wrap or a compression shirt because my belly fat starts to get a lil painful after running a while. 

 

And yes, I've been reading an hour every day.

I love the books!;)

You have a good variety in your goals and covered all the bases. Don't worry because off the first week. You can still make this happen.

For flexibility you can start with stretching.
